Madame the Sévigné. I’ve special memories about her. She thought me so much through her letters. They were meant for her daughter, that lived in a castle far far away in history land. Her letters were very practical, a real help to every woman who just got married. Like her advise not to drink to much chocolate, for she might get a brown baby (in the 17th century cacao was just discovered and very hot in high society).
Normally I make my paper by dipping it into strong coffee (which must always be a bit of a ridiculous sight when I dry it outside on my clothes dryer. Months later I still wear clothes that have some brown spots on them because I did not clean the dryer properly). This time I had only instant coffee. But as you can see, it does work!
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even up side down in the garden! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Art blog here!
